Garen Champion Spotlight

Judgment.png Spin to win in the Champion Spotlight for Garen Garen, the Might of Demacia.

Garen's a melee fighter who excels at bringing justice to his opponents in the form of tough, physical DPS. With a Decisive Strike.png silence, a Courage.png damage-reducing shield and an Demacian Justice.png execute-style ability to help secure kills, Garen's toolkit is ideal for trading hits in one-on-one skirmishes while still remaining tanky. And of course there's Judgment.png Judgment, his signature ability, a furious, uninterruptable damaging spin. Garen's zero-cost spells and sturdy foundation of Courage.png resistances and Perseverance.png regeneration make for an aggressive, bullying playstyle that justifies his reputation as the most respected warrior in Demacia's fighting elite.

Tips

Playing As Garen Garen
  • Garen's Perseverance.png regeneration greatly increases if he can avoid receiving damage for several seconds.
  • Judgment.png Judgment deals maximum damage when only hitting a single target. For effective trading, try to position such that only the enemy champion is hit.
  • Garen is only constrained by cooldowns, making items such as The Black Cleaver item.png The Black Cleaver very effective for him.
Playing Against Garen Garen
  • Stack armor items to lower the large amount of physical damage that Garen deals out.
  • Try to run away from Garen as your health gets lower, as he can execute you quickly with Demacian Justice.png Demacian Justice.
  • Be careful about attacking Garen in brush. It often will lead to taking full damage from Judgment.png Judgment.
  • Judgment.png Judgment deals maximum damage when only hitting a single target. If getting out of its radius isn't possible, move through allied minions to reduce damage taken.
